The Limits of Social Policy

Glazer, Nathan. The Limits of Social Policy. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1988.

Written in 1988, The Limits of Social Policy looks back at the social policies of the 1960s and 1970s, and how they went wrong in the 1980s with social scientists, politicians, and Americans.  Glazer argues that some important social policy problems were ignored, leading to the trouble in the 1980s.
